one of my conv. top cables came loose and snapped the clamshell arm on the driver's side. i just got the piece painted, so now i am ready to begin.

in addition to the clamshell arm snapping, the red ball on the driver's side snapped, so i have replaced both push rods (and they have the newer white ball connectors.)

i think the clamshell itself may be bent as the driver's side does not fit flush like it used to.

i have decided to re-use the original cables with the original top drive transmissions. i did not remove the cables or transmissions. so my questions are...

1. i lost the metal crimp piece that fits at the end of the transmission cable. anyone know the part number, or where i can get a similar (non-OEM) piece. this looks like a pretty standard connector, i just don't know where to find one.

2. how do i re-time the transmissions, so they are both in the same position? how many revolutions does the transmission "wheel" make to open or close the top, or is it even 1 full revolution or less?

3. how would i remove the clamshell if i needed to bend it back into place?

4. what is the order of operations for this whole thing? for example, 1. connect white ball connectors, 2. retime transmissions, 3. connect black canisters, etc, etc.?
